Earlier this evening I ended up in a practically empty theatre one on one WITH A GUY...

    We had a whole space to ourselves yet he sat right next to me... It was so awkward, particularly when I accidentally hit his shoulder with my head while adjusting my position in a chair...

    Now the spoiler... He's straight, my buddy too, and most probably doesn't know I'm gay anyway.

    Nothing happened, we didn't even talk - this whole experience of being in a large space sitting right next to a guy was somewhat surreal... or it would have been if they WEREN'T SHOWING COMMERCIALS FOR OVER 40 MINUTES... Yes, I started this off to complain about commercials... I mean, uh, 50 minutes WHAT... I could have gone to the bathroom like 10 times... And what do they advertise - alcohol and 'sports' drinks (beer commercials tend to be pretty though)...

    My peers already started making fun of the fact that, well... 'two guys going to the cinema and sh**t...' but I don't care.

    After we finished watching the movie we met my homophobic neighbour in the cinema who after staring at us for 5 sec said "...just two of you? watching a movie..." My friend didn't even let him finished, he said "oh we had a 3d guy but he couldn't come", and without realising it made the situation even more awkward; he didn't get the gig at all, but I enjoyed the look in my neighbour's face...

    Sorry for the spoiler, I'm off to spit acid...

    PS: Ridley's Robin Hood's awesome...

    But but he... he's absolutely positively straight... and was absolutely positively concentrated on the film. Plus he's a friend, and I will see him practically every day this and next academic year, and we talk a lot, and... that could be interesting actually icon_eek.gif

    Was the movie really that good? I heard good things about the script when it was entitled "Nottingham" (I didn't read it though). It was supposed to be from the sheriff's point-of-view, with a CSI feel to it.

    Don't worry about it. I don't see anything strange about a couple of guys -- whatever the combination, both straight, both gay, or one straight and one gay -- going to a movie, finding the theater empty and still sitting next to each other. You're friends, right? So what's wrong with sitting together?

    And your homophobic neighbor sounds suspicious, nosy and creepy.

    Now that I think of it, they may have been better off choosing that title and making the movie less character-centred (but that would be a very different movie then). On the whole I really liked it though, I think they pulled it off; it features really nice scenery yet pays enough attention to details - I've noticed it uses lots of symbolism in very subtle ways which is really nice, makes it more atmospheric, check it out ;)

    Meh, it was just strange... the experience didn't follow any stereotype I had in my head (not that I'm not aware of the dangers of stereotyping).
    ...and yes he is creepy, and it was really nice to see him being creeped out this evening icon_twisted.gif
